The Festival

The Shelter Valley Folk Festival takes place each year on labour day weekend. In addition to concerts and workshops on a series of daytime stages and an evening Main Stage, the festival includes an Arts Village showcasing local potters, painters, photographers and one-of-a-kind crafts, quality harvest food purveyors, wellness practitioners and sustainable living experts (providing interactive displays and engaging seminars and workshops).

The festival also features a family and children's area complete with performers, interactive arts workshops, and a lovely children's parade. New this year, the festival offers family-friendly pricing with children ages 13 and under attending for free.

For the full festival experience, open field camping is available on site accompanied with communal fire pits for festival goers to join in the hosted song circles -- don't forget to bring your instruments!
